28 Day Challenge Day Three

So how has everyone got on with the last two days?

I hope your all getting into the swing of things now?

So for day three we’ll be carrying on with everything from day one and two but increasing some of them and adding an additional two items to your daily regime.  All below items in italics are for you to increase and numbers 11 and 12 new items to be added tomorrow.

Day Three (Wednesday):

1. Out with the gluten

2. Out with the processed sugars

3. Meditate for 5 mins a day (rather than 3-5 mins on the previous days it’s now a nice round 5mins! – you can find loads of 5 min guided meditations online to listen to or download for free). 

4. Drink at least 1.5 litres of water a day (this has gone up slightly as we are going to increase this until we are drinking the required amount for our body).

5. Do 10 seconds of planking.

6. Pick another drawer or cupboard to de-clutter, but use the natural vinegar solution (mentioned in day two) as a cleaner rather than any toxic chemicals.

7. Gratitude Pad. Note 10 things you are grateful for in your gratitude pad.

8. Increase the amount of steps or length of time you walked for on day two by 5% on day three.

9. Cut out alcohol and fizzy drinks.

10. Probitoic! If you haven’t started taking or ordered one, then do that today.

11. Cut out sweeteners (most of these do us more harm than good and most of us are intolerant to them as our body finds it hard to process them, especially if they are chemically-produced sweeteners).  Use honey to sweeten instead.

12. Eat your 5 a day! Try to consume at least 5 fruits or vegetables today. Preferably raw.  If not, then at least not really well cooked.  This is so they retain as many of their essential vitamins and minerals as possible.  If they are eaten raw then they will also retain high levels of enzymes, which is essential for overall health, absorption, digestion and underpin most of our bodily functions.

So that’s it for Day Three!

Try and increase all the items in italics above and add numbers 11 and 12 to your regime.

If you have any questions please post them below and I’d be happy to answer them.

PS- You’re doing great!

  1. Excited because the book I ordered – Beat Fatigue with Yoga A step-by-step guide arrived today 🙂 Had to go out, so haven’t had a chance to look at it, but looking forward to seeing if it’s going to be easier for me and help me recover because it has been written by someone who has recovered from ME and “This newly revised edition includes two simple-to-follow chapters on how yoga can specifically help those with profound exhaustion and the condition ME – also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.” I’m very hopeful 🙂 Still need to do my planking, tidy something and drink a bit more water! Wondering how other people are doing…

    • Yes I have that book and also the DVD they produced as well. Alex Howard (the chap that founded the Optimum Health Clinic in London and recovered from ME/CFS himself) produced the DVD and stars in part of it also.
      It has one very gentle yoga routine and one much harder one on it. I love it! =0)
